Due to time, space, and environmental concerns, I've recently decided to make the switch from printing in a darkroom to attempting to print via scanner & printer. Unfortunately, I know very little about the specifics of doing so. I was hoping to get some recommendations on quality scanner and printer brands and models. A good friend of mine who uses this sort of setup said that Epson and Canon are the only two competetive brands currently. Is this true? Also, for a little more specifics regarding my printing desires, I'd like to be able to print from scanned negative images. I currently am using 35mm and medium-format negatives. I'm not sure if I'll move beyond medium-format, though I might eventually. I'd like to have the option of printing large photographs, not just 4x6, 5x7, etc. Any info would be much appreciated. I spent about an hour routing through links to try and find comparable info, but didn't have as much hope as I would have liked.
